      What a delicious way to serve sweet potatoes! I'm a Southern girl so sweet potatoes are a staple at our house. Loved the combination of pecans and the spices; especially, the allspice which I feel is a very under-used spice. If these sweet potato balls weren't already good enough, I lightly dusted some of them with powdered sugar just to see how they would turn out. This dish would make a great holiday dish as well. Made for ZWT-8-Australia/New Zealand.

      I made 2/3 scaled down version of this recipe. Easy to make and served with sweet chilli sauce (asian style)and sour lite cream. I used a blended gluten-free flour to make these suitable to my gluten-free diet. IFor my taste, I enjoyed these, but would leave out the sugar next time round. Photo also to be posed
